I’m sorry for your loss. I will always cherish mine and ms, Yvonne friendship. I will truly miss her and our time together playing chess, talking, and doing word searches. I’ll miss showing her my new taekwondo forms and watching her smile at me through the window . I appreciate her being one of my biggest fans. Heaven gained an amazing lady this week.
